I have two filemaker servers. One is version 7 and the other is version 11 advanced. I transferred the files from FM7 server to FM11 with no problem. Long story short, everything was great until I realized that the users were still using the FM7 files. To fix the problem, I shut down the filemaker service on both servers, then made a backup of each server by copying the files to another folder. Then I removed the FM11 files that were never used and copy and pasted the .fp7 files from the FM7 server to the FM11 server. I started the filemaker service on FM11, opened the files using the FM11 console. Now when I try to open the files on a workstation, the files do not show up in the Remote list. The server console shows that they are open. How can I correct this?

We recently migrated from FM14 to FM15 and suddenly some invoices come out strange after the saveAsPdf script step . ( see pic ). When in preview mode everything seems to be ok and is printed to a printer ok.
Theme : Classic, Font used : Calibri size 11 and 12.
Problem occurs on Mac 10.11 and Win10 with FM15.
When I do a print ( to preview ( mac )) and then save as pdf everything is also ok, so it seems to be related to the FM pdf renderer.
However, not every invoice has this issue, but I wonder how data could cause this behaviour.
Best regards !
I want to share a good cloud backup alternative, Hubic, it gives 25 GB free, and you can schedule backup to happen "x" hours or minutes after a file has changed.
So just add a backup schedule to the "Hubic"folder of your PC or MAC where you have your server and instruct Hubic to sync 1 hour after, that way you make sure the upload will happen after your backup has completed.
Neat and free.
I was using Onedrive, but with the recent decrease in free capacity I looked for alternatives, I specially like the delay before upload.
